? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a grou of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase already slowing the economy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declare victory like 1986. we took the jump out and got the rates down. get those down sharply. >> he will be the president. >>
and more taxes? or is our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and more freedom? i believe in mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i vote
president obama because they're fearful of higher taxes. they're fearful of all those kinds of things. president obama makes the argument that demand, more people working, will create demand and that will create more hiring. so this thing going to be relevant for about ten minutes and after that it's going to devolve into spin for the rest of the weekend. >> which means it will be relevant in a completely different way all the way until sometime tuesday night for sure. ali velshi also going to stick around with us all morning. we've been talking, of course, about jobs, jobs, jobs. as ali said the race there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is
of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack. that attack went on for seven hours. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you
statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that there could be a recount in this state and what are the rules for that? guest: we have specific rules for the state. we have a fine secretary of state, bill gardner, quite experienced in this. he's the person who has been the keeper of the flame for the new hampshire primary. we had a famous account here in the late '70's with senator john durken who recently passed away. frankly, i don't see it coming down to that. we will see what happens on tuesday. i think other states may be more likely to have a recount and new hampshire. host: do you have voter id laws? guest: yes, and there's some controversy. the legislature passed a voter -- a new voter law that required peopl
embrace a balanced approach. that is what i support. i think we can go back to the kind of tax rates we had and the clinton administration, those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach that i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal. >> it is amazing to me, congressman, that you can stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education, and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution.
, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come back at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checked the 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they thin that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and don't cast on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "rolling stopes," make your you're not. be that as a may, a lot of money in the race. do you think mitt romney will be the billion dollar man? >> oh, absolutely. neil: where is the money going? >> on ads.
-class tax cuts so they are no longer held hostage. you're willing to join majority and hold him hostage and not giving it should assurance. i want him to have that i want a farm bill passed so our farmers now delayed olympic i want to stand with our seniors and make sure that we don't balance the budget on their backs and break the promise to medicare we had to i believe mitt romney has ideas as well. i'm not so my way or the highway that i can't look at people objectively and go with what i think is best to every issue that comes before me, my question will be, what's best for this district. that's how i've operated and i continued to do so as a member of congress next year. >> just to be quick on your voting for president obama? hochul: i've said that before, yes. >> okay. there is another question on the floor. other congresswoman to mr. koh, if you will. hochul: chris, i joined mitt romney, president obama, kirsten gillibrand come when the long and many others in full disclosure because i put transparency is important. full disclosure of personal tax return by putting them online so
companies from hiring right now because the uncertainty about tax treatment of assets, of investments and so forth. don't you along to congress more than you do the executive branch to try and get something done as far as job growth goes? >> well, that's what the president tried to do last fall by introducing the american jobs act. you're right. i think extremists in congress blocked the ability to get the economy going again through investment in infrastructure, roads, bridges, and schools. everybody knows that needs to be built. we just witnessed it in the northeast. so we think there needs to be a major investment in infrastructure so that we can compete globally. i think it's really important for corporations that it are sitting on $5 trillion of profits to get their investment bank into securing the middle class in this country. i trust that this president is going to make it happen. >> they're not going to do that, though, if they feel that, you know, their taxes are going to go higher, their health care expenses are going to go higher. the president has not been able to get the two si
been financing this paycheck deduction measure and financing the anti-jerry brown tax measure, though he apparently didn't think he was. that's another story. and yet tom, the hedge fund manager, financing prop 39, i think that's the only one that looks safe at this point. and up got to wonder, i mean, what is it they want? do they see a civic duty, do they see a political future for them? tom, they wonder what he's going to do. but jerry brown is a guy who has been vexed by the munger family. in this race. right? molly munger's prop 38 could be drawing support away from him and her brother charlie munger is financing the campaign apparently to kill his tax measure. >> belva: did one of them put more money in this week? >> the brother, charles, into this political action committee called the small business action committee. i'm not sure there are any small businesses involved in it. that's been fueling this no on 30, yes on 32 mix. this is a tremendous amount of money. and i don't think any of us who watch california politics, the folks there in the studio or me, are surprised this is
will -- expansion wi. i guess my point is that many low income families don't file taxes. so the information that is -- because they're not required to, not because they're out of compliance. but they may not be required to file taxes. so snap information may be available in a way that you can fast track their medicaid eligibility because they provided recent information to the snap agency. so i don't think that that really, um, complicates the opportunities for coordinating between nap and medicaid significantly. >> thank you very much. i am going to give our panelists an opportunity if any of you have closing remarks that you'd like to jump in with before we wrap it up, or -- okay. well, thank you all very much for coming. [applause] [inaudible conversations] >> this program will reair on our c-span video web site, go to c-span.org. very quickly, president obama's put off campaigning for the two days to attend to hurricane relief efforts. he'll return to the campaign trail tomorrow, actually. in the meantime, vice president biden stands in for the president at an event in ocala, florida, t
everybody talks about. you know, the debt, the taxes, how are we going to handle revenues versus costs. the second one, the regulatory wall no one's talking about. the wall that's going to hit with ozone pushed back to 2013, when american has a chance the right now to have this be the american century, this gas and oil break through with fracking and everything has a chance to change the world and we have a chance to be the most competitive country in the world with low cost energy across all businesses, with a great chemical industry, coming back. but that all depends on how we handle regulation. and this administration, more important to our future, lisa jackson, hilda solis, steven chu, regulating-- >> and you say it's going to be regulated to death and put a crimp on everything we do. >> this is the most important election of my life. >> neil: of your entire life? >> my whole life. >> neil: even the lincoln one? >> i knew you were going there, go to my softer underbelly. but neil, we have a chance to turn america totally around. >> neil: what would happen if barack obama won, jack?
's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. after the election both democrats and republicans say this is something the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. >> congresscomwoman if the president wins will they have to budge to raise taxes for the super wealthy to take care the debt? >> i think it's interesting to listen to his comments. basically the president's ideas on how to deal with an economy are an empty binder, if you will. we have brought forward item after item and suggestion after suggestion and bill after bill. we've passed bipartisan legislation in the house, and the senate won't take it up. what we need to do is make certain that we extend the bush tax cuts. we also want to go about closing some of the loopholes and primarily we have to cut federal spending. federal spending is completely out of control and making some cuts into this baseline so that you're actually r
, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee... is responsible for the content of this advertising. what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse roe v. wade. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. >>> livan does glee >>> hit-and-run does >>> there are numerous spots that always seem to be the hardest hit. we got off the phone with the chairman. we go to annapolis, one of those places that floods on a rainy night. >> let's check in with john hanrahan who is live now. >> on the city dock itself, though high tide occurred just a few minutes ago at 6:01:00 p.m.. as you can see, the water water the below the dock. the wind is blowing sort of from downtown annapolis through the chesapeake bay, and i'm guessing it's pushing
billion fair capitalist who's been in a natural disaster. >> new york city taxes itself and spends the money to protect us and to have the services that will keep us going and i know of no other city that does that. which always annoys me when they say "oh, you're a high-taxed place." yeah, and we get something for it. >> jon: you think it's cheap to keep the statue of liberty's legs shaved? it's not? (laughter) she's 200 feet tall and she's french. it's a big job! (laughter and applause) my favorite came straight out of new jersey whose governor chris christie kicked crazy ass during the storm. he's been one of mitt romney's most outspoken allies throughout the president's campaign. this is him 12 days ago. >> the president doesn't know how to lead. he's like a man wandering around in a dark room hands up against the wall clutching for the light switch of leadership and he just can't find it and he won't find it until the next 18 days! >> jon: obama couldn't find a stack of old newspapers in an episode of "hoarders" i'm telling you. this guy couldn't find a container at the contai
the budget and cut taxes. you need somebody will go to the budget line by line and look at the things that can be cut. john: he says he will increase military spending by $2 trillion. >> with a booming economy we are going to have under romney we will have some much money we won't know where to spend it. and the military -- [applause] john: i'm moving on. here is something your candid set the debate that appalled me [laughter] >> i'm not going to cut education funding. i don't have any plan to cut education funding. john: education is supposed to be a local responsibility. the federal government spending $100 billion wasting it, he can't even get that? >> this is unfair. you know i admitted to you in the greenroom. this was the one een i couldn't defend. [laughter] but i will just say romney has said in hi defense and education over and over again that, for example, with the money for disabled kids where kids with special needs. we will send that money to the parents to let them spend -- pick the school. he said we will send the money back to the local government, the state government
more than that and we would get unemployment down to some acceptable level. >> the tax drop under reagan, which everybody likes to quote, was significantly larger than anything being proposed, including by mitt romney and anything more than we can afford right now. but stay right there, peter. we'll come back to this. >> ali, let me bring in diane swonk, who can take the politics out of this for a moment. we're not going to wake up to the same economic problems on wednesday just because there's a different president, right? it's going to be the same situation wednesday morning as tuesday night. >> absolutely. and i think one of the important issues here is let's keep focus on what's going on here. labor force participation rates, lot of games being played with that. it peaked in 2000 when we had really low unemployment rates and anyone with a pulse -- there's a book written about a nudist that got a job working the midnight shift. i wouldn't want to sit in his seat afterwards. i mean, he worked in the nude. i don't want to vision visualize this. but that was the period. half reduc
of his more mathematically challenged promises like that $5 trillion in tax cuts or capping federal spending at 20% of the gdp. paul krugman wrote, romney's plan is a sham. it's a list of things he claims will happen with no description of the policies he would follow to make those things happen. if you refuse to let the media ask you questions, you never have to worry about giving them answers. john walsh is editor at large for "salon" and author of "what's the matter with white people." and douglas brinkley is editor of "rolling stone." he conducted an oval office interview with president obama. what do we make of this whole thipg, th thing, this strategy, first of all with you, douglas, this whole idea of a president, it clicks with me as sort of the dewy campaign of 1948 where the guy basically -- as manchester wrote in "the glory and the dream," he had every means of communication to say anything he wanted, and he had nothing to say. also the nixon campaign of '68 where he hunkered down with his big lead and said absolutely nothing, including no interviews. >> i was thinking of
for us to strengthen budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for every hoosier. but he just had to pay for in indiana. that when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years you are funding the state house, indiana deficits. when ms. daniels came into power just a couple years later and budgets to help to write, indiana with $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $800 million. facts are stubborn things. how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressmen come if you spent the last 10 years in indiana, you'd know that our budget has to be balanced in indiana according to our constitution. i balanced and produce bipartisan balanced budget. and oddly, these were supported by fort wayne zone david long and the tenet of american, peggy stillman. i find it almost laughable that the united states congress and with lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. he voted out once, not twice, but five times, congressman. you voted to edit the results increased her deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b. dollars. >> now loo
. because if, indeed, you cut income tax rates by 20%, and you boost defense spending, you've got to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disaste
of these spending cuts an tax increases that would otherwise happen at the end of the year? if it's mitt romney who gets elected, i think -- you know, he doesn't have that kind of plan on the shelf. we all know how big his economic plan has been in this campaign. i think there will be -- he will ask for and probably get agreement to as they say kick the can down the road. >> assuming the house stays where it is. >> they talked about delaying things for a year to give him time to put down his plan. >> to me the question is if we have an obama victory does senator mitch mcconnell come out chases saying look, it's time to cut the deal? and also what does paul ryan think. he will be the darling of the republicans. gwen: do we think that the well of the executive branch can be unpoisoned? >> i think so. i'm reasonably optimistic about the prospects that -- once we put the campaign 3w450eu7bd us, something's going to happen. it will be easier if obama is re-elected. boehner returns as speaker and harry reid returns as the senate leader because they've been in this before. i think president obama would ca
budget deficit, the uncertainty that exists in america over the fiscal cliff and the tax regime and perhaps anti-business policies being practiced by some -- we're not going to go there too aggressively. and so, um, you know, whatever the case may be, the economy's growing, but it's not a feel-good economy because the growth is not rapid enough to reduce i the level of unemployment in the -- reduce the level of unemployment in the economy. giving you some support, very important area of the economy to both the consumer and consumer psychology is housing. and you see really the ingredients for a decent size recovery in housing activity. affordability is near record high, that's the top left-hand slide. home prices to disposable income is running near record low levels, so houses are cheap. in fact, the value of a home is a function of the capitalized cost of renting. rents have gone up much more relative to house price, and so now it's actually with cheaper to buy a home than to rent. but people have not been doing it aggressively yet because one of the most important expenditure
and little else, 75% saying, you know what, economic issues like jobs, fiscal issues like taxes those are the top issues we're going to vote on. the president if you look at those numbers, the president is underwater on those issues, 47-52%. romney leads him 50-46% in a close race. does that make the difference? >> i believe it does. i think the people vote their pocketbooks. i think they are absolutely distress order that front in terms of what comes next with regard to their prosz peculiarities for job at home in their hometown. so again, i say, the revenge thing, it's a side track. forget it and move back to what people are really focused on which is jobs, economy, debt. >> gregg: you convinced me. i'm over the revenge thing. [ laughter ] >> gregg: moosts me to independents where you look at just about any poll and romney seems to lead anywhere among between independents among 5-10%. so what about that factor, independents? >> yeah, i think overwhelmingly they will break toward romney. i think that is the history of these things. i know in my races as for congress or governorship y
and taxes, and they're only going to get more expensive. that's next. 0t[h7 >> we all know about the fiscal cliff coming in january. less attention though is being paid to the death tax. if congress doesn't fix it, the estate tax is going to go up to 55% after the first million dollars. now right now it's 35% after the first 5 million dollars. guys, what do you make of this one? >> i mean, just don't die, everybody. i mean, this is really -- talk about you didn't build that. penalizing people who worked really hard to pass it down to their kids. i don't think people realize this is happening. congress has to do something about this. when you talk about this, it won't make any difference in our debt. just forget it. other countries have forgotten it. forget it. ccarles: it's not designed at all to help the country. thu at 10:00, the very latest -- new at 10:00, the very latest on the tracking of hurricane sandy and the conditions on the shore. we have team coverage that continues right after this. uh, i'm in a timeout because apparently riding the dog like it's a small horse is frowned upon
